Govt told to consider sport tax incentives

(Australian Associated Press)

The Turnbull government is being urged to consider tax incentives to encourage more Australians into sport.

Private health insurance rebates, Medicare levy rebates and tax deductions for items such as uniforms, event entry fees and gym memberships have been raised as part of consultations on a National Sport Plan, a report released on Wednesday shows.

The government, which will release the final plan later this year, is also being asked to consider taxing gambling, alcohol and fast-food to fund more Australian sport.
